Leadership and Gender-Role Congruency: A Guide for Wilderness Practitioners.
Wittmer, Carrie R.
Journal of Experiential Education, v24 n3 p173-78 Win 2001
If female outdoor leaders assume a leadership style incongruent to their gender role, they may receive negative evaluations even though situations necessitate such behavior. Male and female outdoor leaders can break down gender-role expectations by identifying their own leadership styles and gender biases, creating awareness in colleagues of gender-role expectations, and mentoring program participants in becoming effective leaders.
